Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF), is a new generation of tall fescue which produces rhizomes (an underground stem) that send a shoot up to the soil surface while extending new roots downwards.



  • Deep rooting up to 1.5 metres
  • Produces rhizomes (underground stems) for repair of damaged areas
  • Promotes deep-rooting capabilities, with great tolerance to drought and water logging
  • Excellent heat tolerance
  • Good shade tolerance under higher mowing heights (50mm)
  • Needs less water than other cool season grasses and as a result has been awarded the prestigious Waterwise marque
  • Produces a strong, hard wearing sward
  • Combination of rhizomes and deep roots aids soil stabilisation


  • Lawns and general landscaping – for lawns and areas subject to water restrictions, and for soil stabilisation
  • Turf for Contractors and Specifiers
